Core i5-8265U vs Core i7-1165G7 comparison
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i7-1165G7 performs better than the Core i5-8265U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i5-8265U in all gaming tests too.
Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores and the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Core i7-1165G7 has a significantly higher clock speed than the Core i5-8265U. Also, the Core i7-1165G7 has a slightly higher turbo speed. Both these chips have an identical TDP (Thermal Design Power). This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.
Most CPUs have more threads than cores. This technology, colloquially called hyperthreading, improves performance by splitting a core into multiple virtual ones. This provides more efficient utilisation of a core. Indeed, the Core i5-8265U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
